Mental: Why is all your football stuff in the driveway?
Augie: I'm airing it out.
Mental: Well, you need to get it in the house so I can wash it.
Augie: No. it's fine. I'm just going to put it back in my car.Mental: Wait. I want to get my camera so I can get some shots of this.
Augie: No way. You'll just put it in your blog.
Mental: So. What's the big deal?
Augie: I don't want to be in the blog.
Mental: Well then you'd better do everything I say.
I highly recommend this method of keeping your kids in check. I may start threatening "blog fodder" a bit more. Think of the possibilities.
